On the Market: A Cool and Contemporary Beacon Hill Brownstone
The revamped dwelling features large expanses of glass that lead to a vast outdoor space.
Size: 1,549 square feet
It’d be nearly impossible to not feel at ease inside this Beacon Hill brownstone, located just a block away from the Boston Common and about 350 yards from Charles Street’s charming shops and cafes.
Constructed in 1900 but gutted and rebuilt in 2019 to show off airy, all-white interiors and abundant outdoor space, the unit, which features white-oak floors throughout, opens up to a joint kitchen and living area. The latter shows off a gas fireplace and two windows overlooking Chestnut Street. On the other side of the room, the kitchen beckons with marble countertops, a sizeable waterfall island, and custom cabinetry. In addition to a large Sub-Zero refrigerator, the space also offers a custom wine fridge with two temperature zones and storage for up to 146 bottles. Then, to the left of a five-burner cooktop and double ovens, sliding glass doors reveal an irrigated and landscaped ipe-wood deck boasting more than 350 square feet of private lounge space. But that’s not the only place to get some sun and fresh air: Just below the deck, raised garden beds lined up against an an ivy-covered brick wall dress up a roomy stone patio.
The private courtyard connects to two of the three garden-level bedrooms by way of eight-foot-tall glass doors. In the larger suite, you’ll find a seven-foot-wide walk-in closet, as well as a spa-like en-suite bath luxuriously appointed with radiant-heated Carrara marble floors. The glass-doored shower also sports marble tiles on the floors, the walls, and the ceiling, plus a variety of showerhead options including rainfall, hand-held, and fixed. Doesn’t get more relaxing than that.
